    I'm waiting for a couple parts - one of which won't be here until Monday... so my goal for the rest of this week is get the brake lines done on the C3, bolt the body on, then see if I can make it run.... it would be a big help if I could move both of the projects around by simply turning a key....

    got some stuff progressed

    steering

    I bought a knock-off borgeson joint and then cut the ends off the collapsable portion of the quick ratio box

    I cut the steering shaft long, then flattened two sides so it'd slip together

    and welded it to the column shaft


    then brakes

    what a pain to get to this point

    screwed the brake lines in

    finally found the correct arm... and only the left is readily available... so waiting again for the other side


    the front is nearly done.... tighten a few more bolts, all the cotter keys in place


    rear isn't that far but now I wait for something to get here from PA.
    I certainly have plenty of other things to do and now if I need, I can roll it out

    I got the parts, so tomorrow the puzzle should be complete and I'll have brakes.

    I also verified that I have a 'spare' turbo350 trans from my other Skylark - I may use it just to make this move. it's going to be a choice either make the turbo motor run on a MS3x or simply slap a carb on a 455.... both have benefits and down sides.... but since I know the 200r4 is a $3000 rebuild cost, dividing the spend is a good thing....

    and I'm probably just going to send my liquid cooled visa and my 200r4 to Art Carr... but dividing the wallet pain for after I get this painted and mobile is a good thing.
